Came in with my partner for a meal and the live singer. Had an absolutely gorgeous meal, would recommend to anyone: the menu has great variety, we had the duck and the lamb shank and it was honestly lovely. We also couldn't fault the service, all the staff are lovely, especially Gav the manager! We will definitely be coming back... More

Great Fizzy Friday night at the John Millington or Millys as we affectionately know it. Good atmosphere and the staff are lovely, particularly Dan who seemed know exactly when we ready to order the next round and what we wanted. Top barman. Great manager too in Gavin very accommodating and welcoming.

I had the privilege of dinning at the restaurant this evening and I have to say the service was amazing, we didn't have to ask for anything as Sarah our waitress was so attentive she was on the ball for us the entire time. The meals were cooked to perfection and we will most definitely be dinning there again in... More

My daughter and i visited the John Millington pub today, and enjoyed a very good lunch. We had the set lunch menu, and it proved to be excellent. Often, set menus can be a little inferior to a la carte, but this was not the case. Our waiter, Dan, was very efficient and friendly and made us feel very welcome.... More

We visited JM for lunch and it has been a while since I ate here even though I am local. At 1pm on a Thurs lunch it was busy enough but easy to find a table. The staff were patient with us as it took a long time for us to decide what to eat. Our drinks came promptly and... More

Comfortable surroundings in a wonderful listed building steeped in local history, The John Millington offers diners an excellent, varied menu which is super value for money. The food is wholesome, well presented and served by pleasant and attentive staff. Equally good choice for lunchtime meals. Eat in or outside.

Excellent atmosphere and service. The new facelift has enhanced the bar area and Chris is still the only man in M/C who knows how to pour the perfect pint of Staropramen.
